In the games

Shelly is a Team Aqua Admin in the Hoenn-based Generation III games, as well as their upcoming remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

In Pokémon Ruby, she makes only one cameo, at Seafloor Cavern, alongside Archie and Matt. She does not have an active role in the storyline and cannot be battled. Magma Admin Courtney fulfills the role that Shelly has in Sapphire and Emerald.

In Pokémon Sapphire and Emerald, the player confronts her twice: the first time when she raids the Weather Institute to steal a Castform, and later, when she assists Archie at the Seafloor Cavern.

In the anime

Shelly in the anime

Although the Generation III games show there to be at least two Aqua Admins, only Shelly ever appeared in the anime. Her first appearance was in A Three-Team Scheme!, where she led a group of Aqua grunts on a mission to intercept Team Magma, who were exploring some ancient ruins on Dewford Island in search of the Cave of Origin. Due to a dubbing error, she was mistakenly referred to as "Tactical Commander Isabel" during this episode, though her name was corrected in all subsequent appearances.

In Fight for the Meteorite!, Shelly led a squad of Aqua grunts on a mission to Mt. Chimney, to try to steal a meteorite from Professor Cozmo before Team Magma could do so. Though they did not obtain the meteorite, Shelly still considered the mission a success, since the meteorite was destroyed and therefore Team Magma could not use it either.

She appeared again in Unfair-Weather Friends!, where she and a group of Aqua grunts took the staff of the Weather Institute hostage in order to obtain their data on Groudon and Kyogre. However, their plans were thwarted by Magma agent Brodie, who made off with the data himself.

Shelly's final appearance was in Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends. She snuck onto Team Magma's base disguised as a Magma grunt and freed Kyogre from the cargo container, allowing Team Aqua to control it with the Red Orb. She was present during the battle between Kyogre and Groudon, and like the rest of Team Aqua, has not been seen since.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Shelly in Pokémon Adventures

Shelly first appears as a Team Aqua Grunt alongside Matt and Amber. The three were tasked with stealing the heart component of the Submarine Explorer 1 from Mr. Stone. When Sapphire unintentionally thwarted their original plan to discreetly kidnap Mr. Stone, the three switched to a new plan and directly attacked Mr. Stone in public and stole the component. Sapphire, Gabby, and Ty chased after the three and eventually arrived in Petalburg Woods, where they were attacked by Shelly, Matt, and Amber in order to ensure that no witnesses to their crime would be left alive. With the help of Mr. Stone's Castform, Sapphire manages to defeat the three, but is unable to retrieve the heart component.

Later, Shelly, Matt, and Amber are given promotions from Archie due to their good work. With this promotion, they are given the title Subleaders of the Sea Scheme, or SSS for short. Archie is quick to remind his subordinates that they are still in trouble for leaving the witnesses alive.

The SSS travel to Mt. Chimney so that they can increase the sea level by stopping the volcano's activity. By pretending to be on the side of good, Shelly tricks Professor Cozmo into providing a special Meteorite that can stop Mt. Chimney. When they overhear Gym Leader Flannery talking about Sapphire, the SSS attack her in order to get information about their earlier opponent. Flannery is held captive by Matt so that he may lure Sapphire into a trap and kill her while the others finish their jobs. While Matt battles Sapphire, Shelly continues her task of sweet-talking Professor Cozmo as an act to get his trust. Sapphire manages to defeat Matt and rushes over to stop Team Aqua's plans, but Amber manages to stall her long enough for Shelly to kill Mt. Chimney. With their plan succeeded, Team Aqua escapes and takes Professor Cozmo with them.

When Kyogre and Groudon are awakened, the Gym Leaders split into groups in an attempt to stop both Pokémon. In order to prevent their opponents from keeping Kyogre from advancing, each of the SSS splits up and attacks a Gym Leader. Shelly's opponent is Flannery, who still holds a grudge for what Team Aqua did to Mt. Chimney. With her Ludicolo's Nature Power, Shelly holds the advantage with a variety of unpredictable attacks. In the end, Flannery is defeated, but her Vulpix managed to seal Ludicolo's Nature Power with Grudge, leaving Shelly with no way to attack. Shelly decides to escape since she managed to stall the Gym Leaders long enough for Kyogre to advance without any more obstructions.

In the Chuang Yi translations, she is known as Angie.

Pokémon

Shelly's Lombre

Shelly's Ludicolo
Lombre → Ludicolo
Ludicolo first appeared as a Lombre, being used to attack Mr. Stone to steal the Submarine Explorer 1's heart component. When Sapphire, Gabby, and Ty, chased after it, Shelly used it to kill the witnesses to their crimes. During the battle, Shelly gave Lombre a Water Stone, evolving it into a Ludicolo and giving it more power. It was defeated by Chic after being powered up by Mr. Stone's Castform. Later, when Shelly attacked the Gym Leaders to prevent them from stopping Kyogre, Ludicolo faced Flannery's Vulpix. With its Nature Power that uses the power of nature to create a variety of attacks, Ludicolo easily had the advantage. Eventually, it won, but Vulpix used Grudge to seal Nature Power, forcing Shelly to retreat.

Ludicolo's only known move is Nature Power.
Ludicolo has also used Hydro Pump, Razor Leaf, and Stun Spore via Nature Power.

Debut Lombre Larceny
